, some people say, rode in on the obama wave. the virginia 5th district is conservative leaning and mccain won it with 50.6% of the vote. it is traditionally a republican stronghold and has become somewhat less so. and it is represented by a democrat. >> virginia's 5th district is the size of new jersey and it is a triangle shape with the sharltsville region, home to the university of virginia and thomas jefferson's home down to the south side of virginia, north carolina border that includes the city of martinsville, danville and part of lynchburg. the economy has hit the district hard. their unemployment tops 20%. it's bad, but not quite as bad as elsewhere in the district. there is unemployment continues to be a problem throughout the district. there have been a number of foreclosures, obviously like everywhere. people who have their jobs, their pay has stagnated for the last few years. so it's certainly a big problem here. tom perriello is a moderate democrat. whereas on some of the big ticket priorities on president obama and the democrats, he voted in favor of health care r

care this past week. here is the president speaking in falls church, virginia, on wednesday. >> and health care was one of those issues that we could no longer ignore. we couldn't ignore it because the cost of health care has been escalating faster than just about anything else. and i don't need to tell you all that. even if you have health insurance, you've seen your co-payments, your premiums skyrocket. even if you get health care from your employer, that employer's costs have skyrocketed and they're starting to pass more and more of those costs on to their employers. more people don't get health care from their employers and in addition what you are seeing was that at the state level and at the federal level, the costs of health care -- because people weren't getting it on the job and were trying to get it through the c.h.i.p. program or medicaid or disability or what have you, all those costs were driving our government bank ruptd. >> welt, president obama signed the new health care reform act six months ago. several major portions of the new law went into effect thursda

to do that? i do not know that we do. host: rob on the republican line. arlington, virginia. caller: i want to start with a brief note of fairness for this sitting president, president barack obama. he did say afghanistan was the good war, he did say that on the campaign trail. for him to receive criticism about going back on a promise is wrong. he said he wanted to leave iraq and to work in afghanistan, which is what he is doing. as i see it, one of the few promis he kept. there were a lot of attacks since president obama became president in the green zone. there were eighin the month of june or something and the media has remained silent on that. if george bush were still president, they would be airing not constantly. it would be on all the front pages across the country. when you see an uptick of violence in the green zone, it may not be a good time to pull aout. it seems like amateur hour here. you could take all of the money spent, look at all the projects that have been completed -- massive amount of projects -- add it all up and it is about $35 billion. this is straight from th

discontinued south of here. hurricane warnings still to the north carolina-virginia border. we've got tropical storm watches and warnings. and then for new england, we have hurricane warnings, because there is a very good possibility that earl could strike nantucket, jutting out there into the atlantic. again, the storm surge is about 2 to 3 feet, maybe 4 in some sections. five really in unusual areas. and again, this system is very tightly packed. it is raining but there's dry air to the north and so it's having a little trouble getting the northern fringes of the storm up into the new york area right now. rainfall amounts generally about 3 to four inches, some areas may pick up 5 to 6 inches and as you can see offshore of new england the rainfall amounts go over the rain bucket more than ten inches of rain. so a very potent storm still. still a dangerous storm, but as you said it could have been a lot worse. back to you. >> thank you, al. we'll check back in a couple of minutes. let's go down the coast about 50 miles. jim cantore is in cape hatteras. jim, how's it looking there? >> reporter:
